SENATOR JOSEPH ADDABBO STATEMENT ON HIGH SCHOOLS REPORT

FEBRUARY 15, 2011

 

While I am concerned about the conditions mentioned in the report regarding the area

high schools, I am pleased that the New York State Department of Education/New York

City Department of Education Joint Intervention Team has recommended to keep the schools

open.  I intend to work with the DOE to ensure that the best education possible is provided

for the young students and their families.  It is time to move ahead and work together

to help these students achieve success.

ADDABBO VOTES "NO" ON PROPERTY TAX CAP BILL

 No Relief for Residents of New York City  Queens, NY, February 1, 2011 -- NYS Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. (D-Queens), released the following statement on why he rejected S.2706, the property tax cap bill, when it came to a vote yesterday in the Senate:  "While I would have supported a true property tax cap that benefits all people, S.2706 does not include any property tax relief for residents of my district or anyone else in New York City who are specifically excluded in this bill. Therefore, I could not support this bill that could actually hurt my constituents."

SENATOR ADDABBO'S STATEMENT ON JANUARY 10th CITY COUNCIL HEARING REGARDING THE DECEMBER SNOWSTORM

Queens, NY, January 13, 2011 – NYS Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. released the following statement on this week's City Council hearing on the administration's response to the December 26-27 blizzard:  

"I commend Speaker Quinn and Chairs Crowley, James, Vallone and Williams for their excellent work at the City Council Hearing on the December snowstorm.  I also appreciate the administration’s taking responsibility for not declaring a snow emergency on the morning of December 26, and I am hopeful that the administration will implement their new 15-point plan for any future storm that approaches us this winter.  I believe if a snow emergency is declared early enough, it will be the catalyst for their ability to respond appropriately."
